to write a book about the american founding fathers and gardens because i have never thought of america as a gardening nation. one of the reasons for that might be that my first impressions of america were shaped in 1987 when i went on a 7-week road trip from washington d.c. to san francisco, and that road trip really confirmed every cliche of a german teenager had in the late 1980's. i was in all with the shopping malls and drive-throughs and colossal billboards. but what really stayed with me the most was this, never seemed to cross and the vast fields. it felt almost like man had imposed this raid on nature. even on suburban america, everything seems to be on a larger scale than what i was used to in europe. big houses on large plots of land, not much gardening, but a lot of long. i thought of america as this larger-than-life kind of industrial city -- country, really. it was kind of further confounded by me living in britain where everybody seems to be accessed with gardens. this is what i was used to in britain. this is actually the garden of my best british friend. those of you wh

products. it is time for made in america to mean something again. overseas i have heard our adversaries speak of america's decline as if it were predetermined. it is not. some say today's economy is the new normal all of us need to accept. i refuse to. it is time for america to compete again, and here is how we are going to get it done. first, on debt, let me start by saying that debt is a cancer, which is left untreated will destroy our economy from within. i have been outspoken as a supporter of the ryan plan, which i believe it begins to address the long-term problems that make our current course of standing unsustainable. i also support a balanced budget amendment. we cannot restore our nation's economic strength by cuts alone. we must compete. over the last few decades, our tax code has evolved into a maze of special interest new polls and temporary provisions that cost taxpayers more than $400 billion a year to comply with. rather than tinker around the edges of a broken system, i am going to drop a plan on the front steps of the capital but says we need to clean house, get rid of
